The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has issued a recall for Co-op Gold brand almond butter and cashew butter for containing undeclared nuts.

The almond butter is being recalled for containing cashews, which isn’t listed on the label, and the cashew butter is being recalled for containing almonds, which is not listed on the label.

The specific items are Co-op Gold’s crunchy roasted almond butter and the same brand’s cashew butter.

People with allergies to almonds or cashews should not consume the recalled products because they could cause a serious or life-threatening reaction, according to a news release.

The products have been sold in Nunavut, the Northwest Territories, the Yukon, and in Canada’s provinces.

The recall was triggered by a customer complaint, but no reactions connected to people with allergies eating the products have been reported, according to the news release.
